These vessels are individually hand made from fine, heavy saddle skirting. Each vessel is hardened using an ancient process known as Cuir Bouilli and finished to the highest standard. Waterproofed on the outside with beeswax and inside with a food-safe resin. They can be used with warm or cold beverages, including fruit juices and spirits (that normally dissolve natural finishes).
